Please understand that the gold standard and correct way of practicing medicine is to clinically examine first and based on clinical findings and possible diagnoses, suggest appropriate tests to either confirm or refute the possibilities in mind. Getting all kinds of tests done is a futile exercise. Certain basic blood tests may be done such as hemogram, rft, lft, rbs, electrolytes, tsh to get a general sense of direction. But otherwise, randomly ordering tests is not a good idea. Please get examined by a good doctor and then act on his guidance. Take care!

Heavy or binge drinking ? Use of illicit drugs such as cocaine and methamphetamines ? High blood pressure ? Cigarette smoking or exposure to secondhand smoke. ? High cholesterol. ? Diabetes. ? Obstructive sleep apnea ? a sleep disorder in which the oxygen level intermittently drops during the night. ? Cardiovascular disease, including heart failure, heart defects, heart infection or abnormal heart rhythm. Management of above conditions and lifestyle modification can reduce the risk of stoke significantly.

I had a first case of seizure when I was 14. My Eeg reports were abnormal and so neurologist had prescribed me 3 tablets of valprol cr 200 daily. The medication continued and the doctor had reduced the consumption from 3 to 1 tablet by the time I was 18/19. With no reported case of seizure, my medication was discontinued with me having normal Eeg. In 2010, after few years of discontinuing the medication, I had a case of seizure. This had happened in the morning, after heavy drinking the previous night and few hours of sleep. The very morning before the seizure I could feel shivers and me talking abnormally before losing consciousness. I had not informed my parents and Doctors about this binge drinking and my Eeg reports were also normal. I was again prescribed the same medicines for a year. Again, last November after a long night binge drinking I had seizure. This Sunday morning, after a year of the second attack, I had seizure in the morning after a late night party. I am not a heavy and regular drinker and I never had seizure attacks when I had consumed alcohol like this. I remember sometimes I use to get small kick type sensation if I would not have got proper night sleep or the morning after a small party. In these instances it will be like for a second, something like a small panic attack but I don't lose consciousness like I do in case of seizure attacks. Should I be worried? Should quitting alcohol help me not get any such attacks? What if I get such attacks when I am driving? Will medicines solve the problem?

There is no doubt that you rae prone for having seizure. You has seizure episodes almost a couple of times even when you were not drinking. Alcohol consumptions, decreased sleep, hypoglycemia etc are triggers for seizures in a person who is at risk of it. Definitely quitting alcohol and having a good sleep everyday would help you protect from seizures. However you still need an evaluation from a doctor. take care

Hi. Headache is pain in any region of the head. Headaches may occur on one or both sides of the head, be isolated to a certain location, radiate across the head from one point, or have a viselike quality. A headache may appear as a sharp pain, a throbbing sensation or a dull ache. Headaches can develop gradually or suddenly, and may last from less than an hour to several days. If You give through a description of the condition, the type of pain and the timing and pattern of attacks and food habits. It can be helpful for us to give appropriate medication. Here by I am advicing few General medication which helps to relieve headache. Medication:-According to ayurveda based on individuals prakruti i, e body constitution, age, diet and life styles. In classics different modalities of treatment has been mentioned like shodhana (Panchakarma-detoxification procedure of the body), Shamana (internal medicine). Ayurvedic therapies (panchakarma) for migraine: 1.Shirolepa – Application of herbal pastes which pacify Pitta Dosha like Sandalwood, camphor, Jatamansi. 2.Shiro Dhara – pouring of thin stream of liquid over scalp. 3.Shiro basti-Retaining the medicated oils over the leather cap fitted over the scalp. Any vata-pitta pacifying oils are beneficial for this purpose. 4.Sneha nasya – Instillation of medicated oils can be carried to the nostrils. Shamana (Internal medication):- 1.Pathyadi khada-10 ml with warm water twice a day after food. 2.Tab Niargim-1 tab twice a day after food. 3.Tab Kamaduga with mouktik-1 tab twice a day before food. Tips:- 1.Do not take pain mitigating medicines frequently. Over intake of pain medicines may cause rebound headache and may eventually increase the frequency of migraines. 2.Make sure to sleep and eat at regular intervals. 3.Make sure to sleep at least 7 hours at night. 4.Avoid fasting. It will increase both Pitta and Vata dosha, worsening migraines. Do not skip meals. 5.Quit smoking and get rid of alcoholic addiction 6.Do not drink strong coffee / tea. Make it light. 7.Do not take too hot water bath or too cold water bath. 8.Avoid spicy n fermented food.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. It seems that there is some nerve compression at lower back region. I can advise you exactly if I have certain information from you: - 1) a detailed neurological (motor, sensory, deep tendon reflexes) charting done by a trained physical therapist - maybe neurosurgeon's prescription paper can be of advantage and he must have noted down your examination findings. 2) your mri images and reports in an attachment do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
